Hey fans in Japan! Hello Hurricane was released in Japan today, with the inclusion of two bonus tracks - "Lucky Man" (The Verve cover) and "The Sound" (Acoustic). My friend Yuko from Japan says the songs are FANTASTIC. She also said the album has a sleeve note, description (3 Pages) and the Japanese translation of all songs.
Also, Yuko wrote in to inform us that Jon, Tim and Chad are going to be broadcasted on radio show, February 4th. More information on this is posted right over HERE. I, however, don't know a word of the Japanese language, so perhaps some friends could translate for us?
^I bought a copy, and it's currently in shipping process. Once it arrives in the mail, I'll try to do either a video blog or a picture blog/review for you all! :)
The National Post interviewed Jon Foreman and Drew Shirley. Here is the video:
